Hi! I am still very new to the forum, and I hope I am posting in the correct place. But I was wondering if anyone had any experiance creating a flock, from only a single hen and rooster. In a scenario where you don't need the eggs, would it be possible to have a large flock of chickens within a couple of years? Would inbreeding be too severe? Would you be able to tailor genetic traits that you want by eating Chickens with undesireable traits? I hope this topic isn't old news, and I understand it is a little odd. I hope to get a large flock off the bat. But if I ever just had to take my best two chickens, I was wondering if it would be possible, and how long it would take, to produce a flock of thirty or more chickens, from the original two chickens only. Thanks for your time! I love the forum! Also, I realise the breed would be very important to the time needed to accomplish this. I guess the two breeds I would look at would be jersey giants or leghorns.
